David is all of the things you want in an attorney as noted in my scores above. He is excellent at not only being reasonable but explaining the law in terms that the average person can understand. He is very open about the inequities in the system so you are prepared for not only what may come from the other side but form the judge as well. I couldn't recomend David more highly and if I needed an attorney I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again. You can't always win but with David you can't go wrong.
David kept us informed and returned phone calls promptly. He listened well and genuinely seemed concerned. Mr. Decastro was thorough and told us all our options. If he did not know the answer he would research it for us. He was easy to work with, under a very difficult situation.
California labor law is heavily biased against employers, so I was worried about a former employees' claim and how many thousands I would have to pay. But David helped me win the case , and was helpful in instructing me in preventative measures for the future.
Never been sued and not knowing what to do nor expect, made phone calls to attorneys of whom I know and worked with thru work and ask for referrals of an attorney they have worked with dealing in Real Estate. David DeCastro came highly recommended. Prior to meeting with him, sent over the suit served for his review. Given the accusations made in the suit, Mr. DeCastro asked in our first meeting if there was merit in the suit. Obviously NO, he then assured me that its a case he can represent us on given he has represented others in similar suits. His calmness and assurance along with talking us thru the process has given us peace of mind.
Going forward with the case, Mr. DeCastro handled himself with profession and understanding in what seemed like eternity of the ordeal my family had to endure. With precision, Mr. DeCastro executed our defense strategicaly.
End result, we won our case and was able to obtain judgement for the cost of our defense.
Mr. DeCasto is Trustworthy, responsive and very knowledgeable of his craft and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking Professional Legal help.
I was referred to David Decastro by my accounting firm. I had an employee/unemployment dispute that need resolution. David was outstanding. He immediately drew up an agreement between myself and my employee that protected everyone involved. David was prompt, knowledgeable, and extremely professional. I highly recommend him!
When I was a mediator for David DeCastro, I was impressed how prepared he was for the mediation. He understood all the relevant laws and facts, and utilized a PowerPoint presentation to clearly and efficiently explain his client's position. His preparation and abilities paid off, making it easy for me to convince the other side why settling for what was on the table was better than going to court.
